Jeffrey Carter sent two links that look very interesting indeed.
The first is about pubs in Tipton 200 years ago. Not directly BCN-related, although it seems more than likely that the boatmen of the past might have enjoyed the odd pint here and there. Pubs must have been everywhere at the time!
The second one is very much BCN-related – The Annals of Tipton Canals. It’s a fascinating web page, with lots of historic photos and maps, and heaps of information. Well worth a (long and enjoyable!) read.
Thanks to Jeff for sending the links! If you have, or find anything that might be of interest, please let me know via the contacts form to the webmaster.
